Hide boot messages

Post#1 by uyduruq » 04 Apr 2013, 09:21

Hello, is it possible to hide messages between Porteus boot options screen and xwindow start-up?
I want to put a wallpaper or anything else like MS Windows during boot.

It's name is bootsplash and it'll need to recompile the kernel I think. Fanthom should know better.

unfortunately there is not such cheatcode and i have no plans for implement it as it would require a lot of work.

you could try a bootsplash solution mentioned by hamza but it requires patching of the kernel. also - bootsplash makes sense only when you use proprietary drivers (nVidia, amd).
here is a patch and instruction (in polish but should be clear after using google translate) if you want to give it a go:

good luck!

It seems this is very expensive to work on it :). Thanks for help.

@cttan
3.7.0 patch works ok for 3.7.8.

anyway - just checked and bootsplash is not an option for us since we switched from initrd to initramfs in 2.0.
i have no solution to this problem - sorry.
